Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by celion99 Excellent stay
I stayed in the presidential suite. The whirlpool tub worked really well. The whole suite was very lovely.It was very clean. It was nice that the hotel was close to shopping. The staff was friendly. I needed some extra towels and they brought them up right away. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I would stay there again in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tlsc2008 Disappointed
I recently stayed here with my 2 kids, ages 9 and 11. We had a great time at the pool with some friends in the area who came over to join us. This was our third stay at this hotel, but it might be our last. We turned in for bed around 10-10:30, and were abruptly awaken by doors slamming, people laughing and carrying-on at 2:15 in the morning. I called the front desk to report this, as now all of us were awake. The staff person assured that he would take care of things. The noise diminished for the most part, but over 15-20 minutes time. However, the rowdy group then restarted the party at 3:30am. Again, I called to the front desk and was told, "I already spoke with them, they came down to the lobby and now they must be returning to their room". That didn't help matters, because they were still very LOUD. So now I had been up for over an hour and a half. In the morning, I noticed that there were very few vehicles in the parking lot. I felt that the staff put everyone on the 6th floor with us! Apparently there was a wedding at the hotel, but it was very rude to have those guests assigned to the same floor as other guests not participating. We were all exhausted the next day. When I mentioned it to the staff as we were checking out, the only response I got was, "I'm sorry to hear that". I might have to look into other places when coming to West Des Moines again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim6071 Great Room and Breakfast Buffet
We stayed 2 nights as part of a wedding party. Our room was very comfortable, and the staff were great - able to cheerfully answer all of our questions. The banquet room for the wedding reception and the service there were excellent. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet at Johnnie's. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Caren I would not recommend this place
The hotel looked modern and new but looked like some of the furniture there was from their old hotel before this one was built. There was a cabinet for a refridgerator but not one there you have to ask for one hotel staff said they do this to save money (energy) so if you want one you need to request it. Hotel food was good. The bar closes at 11:00pm as it looked like the hotel lobby also shut down too around midnight. They had a a security guard at the front desk reading and light dimed down low lobby chairs pushed together. I felt like I need not to make any noise. I felt like I need not to make any noise. I would not recommend this place if having a family reunion (wedding). The front desk had no cashbox or ATM. Had to go to a nearby bank.

Staff was excellent checking in. Not so nice checking out. Refused to apply my reward point credit to my account because "you didn't even pay for your stay." It was a business expense that WAS able to be points on my rewards card. I was later rewarded my points by customer service.
